my iphone 4 cannot receive text messages from the philippines
I just changed to an iPhone from a Samsung Epix yesterday. My account has text messaging enabled and it worked fine with the old phone. Everything on the iPhone works fabulously except the text messaging.
Is there an easy way to turn on text messaging on my phone?

i dont know whats happening but my friend is receiving sometimes very old text messages from me whereas i did not send them back...
is it a common issue ?
Lately I would recieve messages hours late or sometimes just not recieve them. When I send texts, its takes forever to send.
Ever since I synchronized my iphone 4 with my itunes I cant find my text messages in my inbox. I receive notifications that I have new text messages but when I unlock my phone there are no red bubbles on the messages icon and my inbox is blank. I have tried resetting my iphone and turning it on and off I have also updated it but nothing helps. I open my messages inbox and its competely blank no record of received or sent messages. When I first synced my iphone I restored it but with my ipod info Idk if this is a problem related to this or just that randomly happened. I can send texts and I guess I can receive them but the problem is that they are not in my inbox and I really dont know whats going on. Did this ever happen to anybody else ?
When I receive text messages my phone does not play a tone it only vibrates however my wifes phone with the exact same settings as mine plays the tone when a text message is received.
a friend is trying to send me a text message with a picture included. i never heard of that, but he claims his phone, a treo, can do that.

Hey there, my husband is currently in England and hes been texting me while hes away. I can send him text message, but not get any from him.
I downloaded the latest iPhone software 3.0.1 release on Saturday evening and since then.... Ive got nothing. Husband called his carrier (we have different carriers) and they report all is fine on his end. I called AT&T and they say all is fine on my end. They even sent an network update to the phone. I powered it down a few times, but no text messages after the phone is turned back on.
I have no problems sending and receiving domestic text messages.
Anyone else having this issue to? What was the fix, if any?
Thanks in advance.

How can I report fraudulent Apple text messages that I receive?
About a month ago I stopped getting consistent service for my iPhone 3GS. Ive spoken to my carrier and they insist its the phone. Ive taken the phone to an Apple store and they insist the phone is fine. Ive gone back and forth between the two, but am out of ideas. Ive gone so far as to restore my iPhone, but Im still having service issues. Its only at home and at work where Im no longer able to get any service.
Ive also had some issue with the phone suddenly powering itself down where the apple symbol is displayed on the screen and Im not able to turn it off or on until it seems to reset itself. I mentioned this issue to the Apple Genius when I took it in and they still insisted there was nothing coming up when they plugged it into their diagnositc program.
My carriers suggestion is to upgrade the phone and sign another 3 year contract (in other words, spend more money with them). Hubbys iPhone 4 seems to work fine at home and has no network issues. I know I have an old phone and Im wondering if they really do degrade like the carrier insists? Its no longer under warranty, so it would be cheaper to upgrade with the carrier, unless its their network at fault, in which case a new phone wont solve the problem.
Any thoughts or suggestions on what the problem could be? Do you think the phones just dying?
Anyway of syncing an iphone to an macbook so that you can receive text messages that are being sent to your iphone # on the macbook?
When i send a text, the white bar on the top says sending, but if i receive a text before its about halfway full the phone wont send the message at all. Then i have to wait about 30 seconds for that one to fail, copy and paste that message, send it again, and then continue on. It happens about 100 times a day and is getting very annoying. i use a white iphone 4, 32GB, for verizon.
Accidentally I drop couple drops of water on the phone.
The phone still works perfect.
I send and receive mails, text messages, and I also can receive calls hear and talk.
But when I want to place a call i automatically receive error message.
I change my chip to other phone and worked perfect.
I try using a different sim on iPhone and has the same problem, just cant make a call.
I updated ios.
I restore to factory.
And still the same problem.
Can someone help me ?
Telephone company says they just cant help because is not line problem and it seems they cant solve the hardware problem.

I have my iphone for 2 weeks and today I notice that I cant receive txt messages on it....also I send them but people dont receive them. What can the problem be...is this something to do with the phone or with AT&T?
This is my issue. I have been using the messages app and spotlight to search keywords and/or phrases in old text messages.
Scenario: Using the search bar in the messages app, I lookup Mac. It returns 2 results. I click the message I want to view and it opens the most recent message in thread. So I tried using Spotlight. Granted, it returns more results (about 6,7), but when I click the message to finish reading it, again, it opens the most recent message in the thread. Is there an app that actually searches messages and lets you view the message?
Attempted to search for a discussion that matched my situation, but have not been able to. I was wondering if someone can help here. I use a iPhone 4S and frequently text to and receive from friends. I also have group text with friends. Recently, when I receive group text messages, it triggers individual messages I have already read to reappear as unread new message. I have tried to delete the individual text message but the next individual text message takes its place in re-appearing. I even deleted the group text but it still happens.
I will backup and master reset if necessary, but wanted to get community input first. Any ideas? Thanks.

I have an iPhone 4 and my boyfriend has an android, galaxys3, and today at 12:57, after he sent me an emoji from his Hangout app, I was not able to receive any more sms messages from him. He can recieve my messages and text me, but I can only send him messages, not receive them. He stopped using the hangout app and returned to his normal text message app, which always works. The only messages I can receive from him are mms like pictures and such. I turned my iMessage off and can text other iphones with text message instead of imessage. My dad has a galaxy note and Ive been receiving his texts. My boyfriends dad tried texting me from his android and I didnt get his either. Ive turned my phone off and back on, did a hard reset on it, turned on airplane mode and then turned it off.
My wife has an iPhone 3G on a monthly contract with O2 in the UK.
I sent her a picture (MMS) message from my 3GS which she couldnt receive as her phone wasnt set up for MMS.
She sent the required text message to O2 who duly responded by saying that they would set up MMS and let her know when it was available to her.
Then NOTHING! She sent 2 more texts to O2 and got 2 more standard replies but still no picture messaging.
Eventually she sent an email to O2 who asked if she had the latest iPhone software and if MMS was switched on. She replied that she had and it was and O2 said theyd look into it.
There was then a few days silence and now O2 appear to be stumped. Theyve asked my wife to phone them on an 0870 number to try to sort it out.
Before she does that, however, does anyone on this forum have any ideas?

Is there a method to convert/export SMS messages to a text file? I noticed there are some PC files out there that do this. Is there an equivalent Mac app that would do this function?

I just upgraded from an old pantech phone to an iphone 5s. Im familiar with running it for the most part because I have the ipod touch 5th generation. However, I cannot get my iphone to send or receive sms or mms messages no matter what I do. Ive gone through all the settings and forums and nothing has worked for me. Ive got the latest ios update but I still cant get it to work. PLEASE help. This is really frustrating.

why can t i receive text messages on my iphone 5s
When i have no 3G left or im not connect to the wifi I dont recieve any of my messages. Even when i turn off my iMessage. Surely my messages should still come through even without 3g as they are network based not internet based? My phone only works when it is connect to wifi or my 3G. It never use to happen, only recently when my phone switched off for a week and didnt turn on. Do i have to take it to the apple store to get it fixed or is there something i can do?
